Mahatma Gandhi once said, “Be the change you want to see in the world.” His empowering words are the motivation behind the inspiring Be the Change! series. Thoughtfully written text and child-centered examples introduce topics such as identifying areas for change, learning about and communicating for a cause, creating an action plan, and overcoming challenges. From starting an e-waste recycling program at school to organizing a toy and book drive for victims of natural disasters, each book includes suggestions for positive action and encourages readers to brainstorm ways they can use their interests, skills, and abilities to help. Mini-biographies highlight the efforts of forward-thinking kids who are taking action to make the world better. Readers will be empowered and inspired as they learn real-world problem-solving skills. This series provides a key read-aloud resource for teachers introducing younger students to these concepts as well as for older readers to read independently.
